The 100 Films Advent Calendar 2012

I don’t normally do much (or anything) to mark Christmas here on 100 Films — there are only so many Christmas-related films, after all; besides which, I normally spend December trying to push through the final few films to get to my goal. But this year is slightly different (only slightly), because I’m giving you, dear readers, the gift of the 100 Films Advent Calendar!

In true advent calendar fashion, that means one brand-spanking-new review every day up ’til Christmas. I can’t promise they’ll be big, and I certainly can’t promise they’ll be clever, but there’ll be one every day. Since when were advent calendars meant to be good for you anyway?

Plus, I know it’s not traditional, but all modern examples seem to do it, so in their vein Christmas Day itself will come with an extra-big bumper review — the only film I’ve seen so far this year that has definitely earmarked itself a place on my annual top ten! So if you’re avoiding the day itself, or just need an escape from the family for a bit (who doesn’t?), there’ll be that slab of un-Christmassy merriment awaiting you here. You’re welcome.

And the other advantage of this is that it should put a good dent in my thoroughly ludicrous backlog. Hurrah! (And if you want an idea of what reviews might be coming up, take a look at that page and start guessing.)

If you so desire, you can check this post regularly over the next three-and-a-half weeks as it will be updated with new links. Or just see them on the front page. Or in your email inbox (if you already follow this blog with a WordPress account, you can change email notification settings here). Or follow me on Twitter.

Come back in the morning, then, when the first review will be revealed…
